It’s not news that Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav is a huge fan of veteran actor Hema Malini. He invited the actor to perform musical recital Draupadi at an event organised by him and his family in Patna. Appreciating the invitation and the concert, Malini tweeted that she had a wonderful time performing and was touched by the family’s affection.
“Had a wonderful show of Draupadi in Patna organised by Laluji & his family. All of them showered so much affection on me-I was truly touched,” she tweeted. But Yadav, a huge fan of hers that he is, got very excited by this and tweeted something that’s equal parts hilarious and weird.
“Ye to apka badhappan hai ki apne hamara nyota sweekar kiya, baki hum dono to surkhiyon main shuru se hi hain. Pyar do, pyar lo… chhota sa jeevan hai,” he responded. Yes, he actually said that that the two are always in news! So much for modesty, we must say.
In case you don’t know, Yadav’s admiration for Malini is nothing new. He even brought up her name during election campaign. He once said that he’ll make the roads of Bihar “as smooth as Hema Malini’s cheeks”, a statement no one can ever forget.
Some of the reactions to Yadav’s tweet were hilarious. Sample these.

Malini was in Patna to perform her very famous dance drama Draupadi on October 25. “The show was for the Bihar Chamber of Commerce which was celebrating its 90th year,” she tweeted.
